Homemade Creamey Honey

I never realized that creamed honey was something you could make yourself, until recently. I bought some delicious creamed honey and was almost out when I searched and found lots of people explaining how to make it yourself.  Who knew?!? All you need is regular honey and a little bit of creamed honey. (which is all I had left).  I'm not technical or scientific so I won't explain it. Here's a more scientific explanation. You might want to look it up if you want to know the science behind it..I just know it works and it tastes delicious. You need to add about 10% of creamed honey to regular honey. I added a couple tablespoons to my pint jar of honey. If your honey has crystallized then warm it a bit by putting the jar in hot water or pop it in the microwave for just a little bit and stir. Then add the creamed honey to the mixture. I used my hand mixer with the whisk attachment and did it right in the jar. You want to make sure it mixes all the way to the bottom. When it looks like it's mixed well, then store in a jar somewhere slightly cool...they said around 57 degrees. I put mine in my canning jar cupboard and it's turning out just fine.  After about a week it is ready! I put it on everything, biscuits, toast, oatmeal, yogurt. Hope you try it!
